I own thy voice -- Fathr, who mak'st thy suff'ring sons -- Fear not, poor wearly one -- Fire in my meditation burned -- Five were foolish -- Fling out the banner -- Flood swell around me, angry, appalling -- For just men light is sown -- For lo, my Jonah how he slumped -- for us no night can be happier -- From agae to age they gather -- From countless hearts -- From heart to heart -- From whence doth this union arise?

Take thou our minds, dear lord -- Tarry with me, o my saviour -- Tell me not in mournful numbers -- Tell us, ye servants of the lord -- The almighty spake and Gabriel sped -- That day of wrath, that direful day -- That we may worship thee -- There is a high place -- There is a land mine eye hath seen -- There is an hour of peaceful rest -- There is no name so sweet on earth -- There's a land that is fairer than day -- They cast their nets in Galilee -- They pray the best who pray and watch -- Think not when you gather to Zion -- This flock so small -- This is my father's world -- This new day -- Thou art, o God, the god of might -- Thou art the tree of life -- Thou art the way -- though fatherland be vast -- Though I should seek -- Though my thoughts -- Thou grace divine, encircling all -- Thou long disowned, reviled, oppressed -- Thou, Lord, hast been our sure defense -- Thou lord of hosts, whose guiding hand -- Thou one in all, thou all in one -- Thrice blest the man -- Thrice welcome first and best of days -- Through the dark the dreamers came -- Through warmth and light of summer skies -- Through willing heart and helping hand -- Thus spake the saviour -- thy loving kindness, Lord, I sing -- Thy mercies, Lord, to heaven reach -- Thy praise, o God, in Zion waits -- The time is swiftly rolling on -- The time will surely come -- 'Tis midnight and the olive's brow -- 'Tis the gift to be simple -- 'Tis winter now -- Today beneath benignant skies -- To God our strength shout joyfully -- To show how humble -- To thee, eternal soul, be praise -- To thee, o God -- To thee, o God, the shepherd kings -- To thee, then, let all being bend -- To thee the tuneful anthem soars -- To thine eternal arms, o God -- Touch thou mine eyes -- Trembling before thine awful throne -- True son of God, eternal light -- Trust in me -- Turn, turn, unhappy souls, return -- The twilight shadows round me fall.
The Sabbath day was by -- Saints in glory, we together -- Salve Jesu pastor bone -- Saviour, sprinkle many nations -- Saviour, thy dying love -- Saviour, who thy flock art feeding -- See how the rising sun -- Send forth, o God, thy light and truth -- Settling in a new habitation -- Shall man, o god of light -- Shall we gather at the river -- Shephered, show me how to go -- Si feliz quires ser -- Singing at the plough -- Sing, my soul -- Sing to the lord most high -- Sinner, is thy heart at rest? -- Sinners, will you scorn the message? -- Slain lamb of God -- Sleep, sweetly -- Slowly, by God's hand unfurled -- Softly fades the twilight ray -- Softly now the light of day -- Song for the stable -- The song of Moses and the lamb -- So touch our hearts with loveliness -- Sovereign and transforming grace -- The sower a singer -- Spare us, o Lord, aloud we pray -- The spirit in our hearts -- Stand up, stand up for Jesus -- The stately structure of this earth -- Still, sill with thee -- Such as in God the lord do trust -- The summer harvest spreads the fields -- Summertide -- The sun and moon so high and bright -- The sun now risen -- Sweet rivers of redeeming love -- Swell the anthem, raise the song.
